Somehow, while I had my eyes fixed skyward, August arrived. Like the clouds and birds, zip, zip, zip go the days.

Two family birthdays for us today — sending wishes for the happiest of new years to my grandmother (87!) + our second littlest niece, Cora (2!). We love you and miss you both very much, XOXO.

For the rest of us, check out the links and updates below, then switch off those computers and silence those phones to make it a memorable, distraction-free weekend!

Cheers, Heather

    Alarming article about the disconnect that people have these days. I’m glad I grew up at a time when all these electronic devices didn’t exist (and wouldn’t, for decades!). I think I would enjoy the John Dough bakery! I know I’d love to have a pair of the blue-footed boobie socks- wouldn’t everyone? Great little list of Wisconsin words and sayings- I’ve heard them all at one time or another! Another terrific blog!

      I remember getting dial-up internet in my early teens or so. Thankfully we had most of our childhood without it as well, and the waiting due to poor connections and speeds often spurred a return to non-computer activities out of frustration! It really is disheartening and concerning the way things are now. Maybe blue-footed booby socks would help! :)
